Friday Five

Post yours in your own journal. Questions come up every week at Friday Five

  1. What is your biggest pet peeve? Why? Stupid people. Not just the ones that are dumb, more the people who refuse to remember anything or learn anything new. Why? Because they make me want to kill.
  2. What irritating habits do you have? I'm sure the peanut gallery will have something to add, but let's see:
    • I am paranoid about being late to the point of showing up everywhere at least 15 minutes early.
    • Things go in specific places. That is a rule. Food and utensils may not share cupboard space. Hot pads go back on the hooks on the wall.
    • I have been told that I can be a tad arrogant, but that's only because I'm better than you.
  3. Have you tried to change the habits, or just let them be? I don't show up 30 minutes early, but otherwise this is it.
  4. What grosses you out more than anything else? Why? I think I'm remarkably un-gross-able.
  5. What one thing can you never see yourself doing that other people do? Avoiding computers or books. :-)

C'mon, smartasses, jump in!

Interesting... I'll throw in my two cents as well...

1) People who make promises that can be easily kept, but don't keep them. (See: Stupid People)
2) I always ask people to repeat themselves (partially due to loss of hearing, but mostly out of habit).
3) I tried to get my doctor to say it is due to partial deafness (from working in Rock Clubs and Video Arcades), but he says I do it to annoy my wife.
4) Dog Vomit. Nuff Said!
5) Relying on Time Outs instead of spanking my kids when they need it. Hey, it worked on me!

The intent of the Friday Five is to encourage a post at least weekly in your own journal.

I know, you're new here. :-)

Which I have thus far....

I just thought I'd add some more commentary to yours! : )

And, a quick swat on the butt does wonders for correcting errant toddler behavior. So does sending him to his room for 2 hours, no toys or TV.

Very contrite tyke returns most times. :-)
